I've tried playing Harvest Moon games or Rune Factory games in the past, but I've always had trouble getting into them. I don't hate the concept, but there's just something about them that's made it difficult for me to really get invested. However, there's something about Stardew Valley really had me hooked.
The Kickstarter campaign for Bulkhead Interactive's upcoming World War II shooter, Battalion 1944, has ended, securing a total of £317,281 through 10,0096 backers meaning that the game has been fully funded for a console and PC release, plus a handful of stretch goals.
If you're a regular reader of n3rdabl3, you'll know that I'm ad advocate for coding to be taught at a young age, our future generations should be able to have some understanding of how today's tech works, and teaching them how they're designed and how they work on a coding level is definitely the way forward. But there's one problem. Staring at lines of code isn't the most exciting thing to do. Fortunately, there's a new Kickstarter campaign which hopes to make coding fun by combining it with a programmable robot and paper craft!
So here’s a cool idea for those of us with old games that we hold on to for sentimental reasons. There’s a Kickstarter going on for a company called Linked To The Wall.
For the most part, crowdfunding is a fantastic way for creatives to get their idea off the ground, be it a band wanting to crowdfund an album, a developer wanting a video game funded, or a tech startup wanting their product to become a reality, among other things. But sometimes, despite a project hitting their funding goals, they don't always deliver.
So, I mentioned a Power Rangers pitch. Now it's time to strap in, because it's time for another bedroom-dreamt-up fan fiction treatment pitch!
Say hello to Fig, a new crowd funding platform for game developers, brought to you by Justin Bailey, formerly of Double Fine. Fig offers a reward-based funding solution much like Kickstarter but alongside equity investment. Fig's advisory board will include the likes of Tim Schafer, Brian Fargo and Feargus Urquhart.
In a never-before seen deal, Attic Door Productions' The 13th Doll - a fan-game that pays tribute to Trilobyte Inc.'s classic 90s horror puzzle game The 7th Guest - has been given permission by the original game's developers to be made into a full-fledged official release. Responding to this, Attic Door Productions have taken to Kickstarter with the newly resurrected Trilobyte's blessing in tow.
The Kickstarter campaign for Perception has come to an end and has been successfully funded!
In case you missed it, Shenmue 3 was announced at E3 last week, kind of. I mean, it was announced, but the game technically doesn't exist in any way shape or form at the moment. It's just a Kickstarter campaign for the game, and while it secured funding in under 12 hours, there seems to be a hell of a long way to go before the game is how the developer actually wants it to be.
The main premise seems to be that you, as the main character, are what is referred to as a “Downer”. What is a Downer? A Downer is someone who refuses to take the government prescribed happy pills (called “Joy”) that keep everyone blissfully doped up and unaware of anything going on around them of any consequence. You are a stubborn Downer, and your goal is to escape the city.
When I originally heard about kSafe, I was offered the pitch that the safe could be used to keep you more active, help you complete goals, or in some cases keep things away from people for a certain amount of time. The reason for this is because the kSafe is more than just a safe that you can lock and unlock with your smartphone, the kSafe can give you the biggest challenge of your life.
